Zimbabwe: Government publishes anti-terrorism bill

On 27 March, the Government published the Suppression of International Terrorism Bill which, if enacted, will grant the executive wide discretionary powers to designate an organization as a foreign or international terrorist organization.  Such organizations are broadly defined as “any association of persons formed with a view to overthrowing or taking over the government of any State by unlawful means or usurping the functions of such government.” Giving moral support to such organizations would be an offence punishable by five years imprisonment.
